But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. (Luke 12v39 NIV)

This is a shift from being ready for Him. 

To being on your guard against the circumstances of life. 

You still have to be aware of where doubt and unbelief creeps in. 

It is your responsibility to be ready. 

Don’t allow lethargy and apathy get a grip. 

Allowing circumstances to escalate out of control. 

Your circumstances will rob, kill and destroy you if they can. 

But if you are aware of this. 

You will never have an excuse. 

There is no warning of what is to come. 

It is your responsibility to be alert, to be awake. 

Your focus is on the Good Shepherd not the thief. 

Be ready for Him and nothing will take you by surprise. 

Be ready to give thanks. 

Worship all day. 

Pray without ceasing. 

Give thanks continually. 

Turn every problem into a blessing.
